Adjustable waistband tightening with rip-tab.
Belt loop for added a belt if needed.
Elasticated snow gaiter.
2 large zipped air vents.
All the zips are waterproof.
3 pockets including one at the thigh with a mini pocket inside for your phone.
Water-repellent fabric allows water to run off its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from becoming waterlogged and remains light, breathable and warm. The water-repellent property is obtained by applying a treatment to the outer surface of the fabric. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment (every 3 washes). All Wedze jackets have received a water-repellent treatment.
Breathability of a component
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapour generated by physical activity can escape and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9 < RET < 12 = very breathable fabric / 12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric / RET > 20 = little or no breathability.
Component's waterproof properties.
The resistance of a fabric is measured using water pressure expressed in water column mm (test based on ISO 811). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. For example, a fabric with a waterproof rating of 10000 mm is therefore resistant to the pressure exerted by a 10000 mm column of water
What is a membrane or coated component?
The coating is akin to a paint applied inside the fabric that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It is often less expensive than a membrane and requires a liner to protect it. The membrane is a kind of very thin plastic film (polyurethane) that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It has the advantage of being softer, lighter, more durable and often more breathable than coating.
This garment has been validated in a shower test under 60 L of water / sqm / hour for 2 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.
How do we make a garment waterproof?
The waterproofing of the garment is provided by the component, the taping of the seams and the assembly design.
We then conduct shower tests on our clothing
Tutorial on how to wash your waterproof garment
We recommend that you comply with this protocol at every wash in order to retain all the technical features of your garment.
After three washes, restore the water repellent properties with a waterproof spray or wash-in product.
How do I know if my clothing is breathable?
In addition to the breathability of the fabrics, we use technical solutions (zips, vents, mesh, etc.) that improve the overall air cooling of our jackets and trousers designed for Freeride skiing or All-mountain use. These ventilation systems regulate the temperature inside the garment while also helping to eliminate the perspiration generated by the body during physical activity.
Product environmental impact comparison score
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire lifespan, using various indicators. An overall score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks etc.) .Decathlon is committed to displaying the environmental information of its products.

What is the RECCO system®?
All our Freeride and All-Mountain jackets and trousers are equipped with the RECCO® system.
With the RECCO® technology, you can be located in the event of an avalanche. Someone who is equipped with RECCO® reflectors and is buried in the snow can be quickly and accurately located by the emergency services using the RECCO® tracker. RECCO reflectors are not a substitute for an avalanche beacon. The RECCO technology works as a complementary measure, increasing the chances of being found in time.
